Processing Nuts

In order to make nuts more easily digested, and to be more sure of the quality of your nut, Sally Fallon Morell, among others, recommends that nuts are soaked and lightly roasted or dehydrated before eating. Although it takes time, it is a very simple process that in reality only takes a few minutes over a couple days. It is best to start with a raw, organic nut for the best results. Nuts are expensive so they are best to buy in bulk, when at all possible.

Spiced Roast Vegetables with Tomato Sauce and Sardines

This is what I call poor man’s roast. Sardines are a great affordable way to get protein and fat if you are on a really tight budget. If the vegetables are roasted to the point of caramelization the flavor will be even better. This is actually a delicious dish even if you aren’t broke.
